Dear Ron,

Thank you very much for your suggestion.

I see...I will try multinomial logistic.

By the way, mice and their immunological
conditions were monitored everyday. 
Is this a sort of survival time data (?).

In addition, mice, which died of "Z", might
have developed "Y", if they have had survived
"Z".  So, is it possible to treat 
a death from "Z" as a "failure to follow up"
in whatever sort of survival analysis?

Yoshiro

P.S. Let me apologise for the inadequate
remark about the death of mice.
